Tonsil cancer

Posted by @juliann in Brain & Nervous System, Sep 21, 2011

I had tonsil cancer in November 2007; tonsils removed and 7 weeks of radiation, with one day/week chemo. I have a sweet putrid mucus that stays in my mouth all the time and most doctors think it is an after effect to radiation. However, it has been almost 4 years since my treatments. Following treatments, I had the normal metallic taste, heavy mucus, sore tongue, trouble swallowing, etc. Then things started getting better. But, not for long. About 1 1/2 years ago I started having this sickening taste, with frothy mucus, sometimes pasty in my mouth 24/7. I cannot find a doctor or hospital who will explore other causes than radiation. I suspect bacteria infection (possibly pseudonomas which has sweet taste), but have been unable to find a hospital or doctor who will check this out.

Hi, Julianne. That must be sickening in your mouth. I have been doing a lot of research about toxins in the system. We live with 100 times more toxins ~ air, water, food etc.~ than people in the early 1800's. Our bodies just don't know what to do with it all. I had a toxic overload for about a year that was ruining my life. It almost killed me, doctors knew ZIP. I must have tried 6 different "toxic relief" remedies before I heard of the lemonade fast. I wasn't aware that lemons (organic) have properties that first remove the toxin, then help it escape the body. It sounded silly at first, but then I got the little book and read about the benefits of lemons and tried it. Within a few days the toxins started eliminating. Now, whenever I start having the symptoms (I'll tell my story some other time), I drink the mixture, which is quite good. The book can be ordered online, or purchased at any health food store ~$6.00~a short book full of, for me, life saving info. It's called "The Master Cleanser" by Stanley Burroughs.I use organic lemon juice & organic maple syrup organic cayenne pepper (which I make from the peppers I grow in my herb/veg garden). I don't have lemon trees to pick from around here! The book is bright yellow. I never did the total cleanse, I continued having a homemade vegetable ONLY soup for lunch, because I couldn't do what was necessary to come off the fast. I believe that 90% of the food available today is not food anymore. The body does nor recognize it as food. I didn't look at your profile, but I am 57 and I remember there being one kind of "boxed food" when I was little. Pot pies. Now, the fruit & veg, dept. is the only place where real food from the Earth is. I'm not a fanatic, I just believe that the diet should consist of mostly fruits/vegetables and grains. I used to hate hearing "grains" I use wild rice mixtures, pasta, beans, I add different seeds like sesame to my stirfry. I grow some herbs, very easy to grow, I choose the ones with the most benefit. I believe Americans eat WAY TOO MUCH MEAT A serving is the size of the palm of your individual hand. Please give it a try, I really think it must be a reminder every moment of the cancer you beat having that sickening symptom. Please let me know O.K? P.S. The lemonade would also cut the actual mucus from your tongue for a nice start. Good luck, take good care, Marian

Hi Marian: Thanks for your reply. I ordered the book and will read it and try some of the suggestions. It can't hurt. The local doctors sure haven't done much, if anything, to help me. I know the radiation I had (4 years ago) affected me, but some of the new things I am experiencing have nothing to do with after radiation effects - I convinced a doctor at the University of Alabama in Birmingham to look for blockages in my parotid glands and he reluctantly did surgery and found they were blocked (had kinks in the salivary glands) which made my mouth sore, but unfortunately wasn't the cause of the foul taste and dripping uvula mucus. I need to find somewhere to go (Mayo?) who will spend more time looking at my symptoms instead of my past (cancer treatment issues), and check into things like acid reflux, where the drainage dripping into my throat is originating (like a post nasal drip with a foul burning taste) is coming from. I will try the lemonade and other suggestions when I get my book. Thanks. I hope you are doing better. What are you doing for your problem(s)? It's a shame you can't live in a place where you could be happy and not so depressed. I know how you feel about losing your daughter. I lost my son when he was 29. He went to Cancun, Mexico on a vacation and drowned. It just about killed me. He went with a girlfriend who I didn't like (she was 10-years older than he), and they had asked me to go, but I was working and almost went, but didn't. I always thought afterwards that if I had been there, he wouldn't have drowned. Anyway, he's in Gods loving hands now, so that makes me smile. Take care and talk with you again.

Dear Julieann, I am so sorry about the death of your Son. No one but us Mom's know the pain of losing a child. They began life inside our actual body, and so, for me, the pain is not only emotional, but physical. What is his name? If you don't mind me asking. I'm so glad you ordered the book. In the thousands of hours of research I've done while looking for how to be well, toxins are a common thread in every article from the natural world. The medical community as a whole has let me down my entire life. I have had chronic pain always with Kyphosis. I just lived with it and worked as a 21 dealer first (after my kids were born), and then a waitress. It wasn't until I got the "Hyperkeratotic fissured hand ecxema" that effectively forced me to quit working. I get these callouses that crack pretty deep all over my palms and inside my thumbs and bleed. It just won't go away. I've had it for 13 years now. It is painful and a pain. I have to glove up to rinse a stupid glass. I have tried, well, you know how it is. Everything. Asked everyone in every type of setting. I know that this dry climate exacerbates the condition. It is about 2D (I don't have a "degree" icon on my keyboard) humidity here. I used to like the weather, but now I am really sick of freezing my bottom off 5 months a year. 30 years I have lived here, time for a change. My "husband" proved he cares more about the house than me, so it is up to me alone to move. He can live in his little world alone. Another story. Sorry. And we get maybe an inch of rainfall a year. Well, it is the desert. I started gardening 12 years ago. I really need to see green instead of brown. I thought I could create like a gilded cage of beauty. We can't even have a lawn because the property is hilly. Anyway, I digress. I was thinking that you know how everything is antibacterial now. Well, it kills the good bacteria that our body produces to fight the bad. Maybe starting to take probiotics would help balance out your immune system. As I am sure you know,our immune system is in our digestive tract. Nature Sunshine products are the best. I've been studying health in nature for a long time. If I think of Eastern cultures, the way they eat and how much emphasis is put on spiritual alignment I see why they, as a half of the world, are much healthier than us hands down. I started meditating, practicing yoga and embracing visualization about a year ago. It has been more beneficial than every medical practice put together. If a cell can turn into cancer (I am not agreeing with the doctors about your new symptom being about that), just an example. anyway, if a cell can morph into cancer, it can go back. I am learning that our mind and spirit has way more power than I thought. I am not well, unfortunately, but I am having some peace in my life sometimes. I hadn't had a moment of peace since I walked in after work to find DeAnna waiting, she'd been held captive, raped, drugged and so much more. She was dead 5 years later. Another story for another time.I am amazed at how natural foods and even how they are grown nowadays can affect our health. I hope you find the path to removing those awful toxins from your mouth, & therefore your system. I hope you don't ever have to be cut again. I hope that together all of us can share our knowledge and find health again. The depression is what keeps me from really being able to get well, but my garden is the 1 place I am happy. DeAnna loved the garden. She lived her life in fear, even though her husband was 6'5" and the biggest man I have ever known. She had weapons stashed all over her house, a specially trained dog & still couldn't be alone, ever. Her autopsy came back "undetermined". She died in her sleep, my only comfort. She didn't die in fear. I know that her heart just beat itself to death. She would have been 32 on April 11th. Take good care and please let me know how things are progressing O.K? Marian
